Sounds like the playground mentality strikes again.
I would agree with haze on that he was asked by a dev to look into a problem, which he did of his own will, then reported back to the person who asked him about it. (Osso)
Osso the makes any necessary changes and submits the code through the correct procedure.
I cant see any problem with this, and yes this is how most software development and business in general operates. Reporting back to the person who raised the problem in first place.
And really does it matter in who fixes the problems anyway, for the benefit of all, is it not better to have these corrections implemented than leave them in an unfixed state for however long.
Sorry but the bitching is very reminiscent of the old C64 scene at the latter end of its days, so much arguing and fighting over trivial matters.
There are no sides if it benefits the project of documenting our arcade machines for future generations.
